After years of refining her craft, Wollongong based singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Ivori aka Jess Brooker, is no rookie to the music world. Launching her new project in 2018, Ivori has created an eclectic indie pop sound, combining her piano roots with catchy vocal hooks and electronic production.
Jess has had a long history of creating music, from early beginnings playing piano and singing and just 8 year old. Her love for music and performing continued through her teen years and early adulthood, continuing to study music and contemporary performance at university.
Her debut single Bittersweet, released in 2018, was a ‘stellar and catchy debut that’ll no doubt aid Ivori on the way to being an act to watch throughout the rest of 2018 and beyond’ (Pilerats). The soaring, dynamic vocals over electronic production by Sydney producer Obseen creates a striking track, with Purple Sneakers describing it as ‘indie-pop with an edgy and experimental undercurrent.’ Reaching #1 on the Triple J Unearthed Electronic Charts, #11 on the Overall Charts and a spin on Good Nights on Triple J, the single was a powerful debut.
Her second single ‘The Moment’ gained community radio plays from FBi, Syn, Joy and 2rrr, and her tour saw her supporting Fergus James at Oxford Art Factory Gallery Bar, and Sparrows at North Wollongong Hotel. With a new single and tour set for July, as well as playing later in the year at Yours & Owls Festival, this year is set to be an incredible one for Ivori.
